He told The Sun: “The first time we met – I’ll hold my hands up – I did DM her first and got a reply but then nothing ever happened. 

“Then she called us out for basically leaving her on read.

“I’m from Newcastle and eventually we met up, and then went on a very undercover date, and obviously what comes out in the press, comes out in the press, but it’s not always the full story

“I’m kind of glad in a way as well, as I feel like there’s an element of having to hide too much now.”

While it is still early days, the ex-Love Island contestant admitted that their relationship is getting more “serious”
